129 Page Dossier on Fr. Pedro Corces

The beleaguered St Rose of Lima, Miami Shores
When Googling the name of Alberto Cardenas, Fr Pedro Corce’s prostitute lover, the Internet conveniently coughed up the 129 page Dossier prepared by a private investigator for Christifidelis at St Rose of Lima, Miami Shores. To say the least, the Dossier makes clear that Fr Corces is more interested in sex and pleasure, vacations and beauty products rather than Christ Jesus and the care of his parishioners’ souls guiding them to Heaven.

The Immutable Archbishop Thomas Wenski

Archbishop Thomas Wenski
The immutable Thomas Wenski, Archbishop of Miami, is in the news again with charges of “slanderous gossip, calumny, detraction” against the faithful. It was déjà vu reading the Miami Herald article since when Archbishop Wenski of Miami was Bishop Wenski of Orlando from 2004 to 2010, and we wrote the Orlando Truth newsletter, he vilified us with identical charges.

At one point Bishop Wenski said that I was on the verge of excommunication. “ME?!” I replied. “How about excommunicating your heretical Chancery nuns and the Orlando priest we caught going to an out of state nude gay resort with his priest lover from another diocese?” (That priest still remains the pastor at his same Orlando Diocesan parish which has an elementary school.) Admittedly, while reading this article I chuckled at a few sentences which brought back joyful memories from those years, especially the part about the private investigator “going through the church rectory trash”. Those were the days.

Murdering Shakespeare to Push an Agenda!

No wonder Kate couldn't get a husband!
I'm on Travelzoo's mailing list so they send me info about local deals. Today I got one for 50% off The Taming of the Shrew at the Shakespeare Theater in D.C. Being a Shakespeare enthusiast, I immediately checked out the deal and, lo and behold, it's Shakespeare in drag. All the parts are being played by men. The two major female leads, Kate and Bianca, are played by...well...what can I say. Iskandar certainly didn't go for their looks.

My initial reaction was to shake my head.

"Birds of a Feather Flock Together": Victor and Jorge

Archbishop Victor Fernandez 
My mom always warned her ten children saying, "Be careful of the company you keep. People will judge you by your friends." Shakespeare certainly reflected that in Henry IV parts one and two. The young Prince Hal hangs out with a bunch of drunks and cut-purses, cheats, and scoundrels! He enjoys himself until pragmatism (the death of his father and his ascension to the throne) spurs him to cut the strings to his former buddies and eventually execute one for stealing a pyx from a church, ironic since Hal's own father (and by inheritance himself) stole the throne of England. The hypocrisy of the powerful is unlimited.

Why Does Jesus Curse the Fig Tree?

red breba fig from Lebanon
Today's gospel (Mark 11) has one of those confusing events that always make me scratch my head? Jesus is walking along the road with the apostles and he's hungry. He sees a fig tree growing by the wayside and goes over to look for figs but the tree has none because, as the gospel tells us, "it was not the time for figs." Jesus curses the tree and the next day when He and apostles are returning to Jerusalem, Peter observes that the tree has withered and died.

Now, I think the immediate reaction of many Catholics hearing that today is, "That's not fair. Why should the fig tree be expected to have figs out of season?"

This One Liturgical Practice Would Make a Huge Difference in Reverence...

Shepherds lead the flock to heaven's door ad orientem.
...and it would be celebrating Mass in the ordinary form as it was ALWAYS meant to be!

Vatican liturgy chief urges priests to celebrate Mass facing east
"In an interview with the French Catholic magazine Famille Chrétienne, Cardinal Robert Sarah said that the Second Vatican Council did not require priests to celebrate Mass facing the people. 
"This way of celebrating Mass, he said, was 'a possibility, but not an obligation'.
Readers and listeners should face each other during the Liturgy of the Word, he said. 

Thus Always to Tyrants! Obama Sued Over Bathroom Insanity

Eleven States Sue, Since Congressional Wimps Don't Do Anything!

I think it's time to hang a great big CLOSED sign on the U.S. Capitol. While I applaud the eleven states (and the premier state of North Carolina) suing the mad man and his lackeys over the bathroom insanity, where is Congress? Who are the lawmakers according to the Constitution? Those cowards have rolled over with every executive order. They've abandoned their budgetary responsibilities and allowed us to be inundated by a tsunami of debt. Most of them seem to care about nothing but their seats in Congress where they often leave a lot richer than they arrived.

It’s in your DNA, Stupid!

It’s in your DNA, Stupid!  These are "going to jail" words, so don't say them. Instead here's the first lesson on how not to be taken to jail:  

                       Transgenderspeak 101: Correct Pronoun Use

A transgender man who used to be a woman must be referred to as “he”.
A transgender woman who used to be a man must be referred to as “she”.
A 6 year old girl who used to be a 52 year old man must be referred to as “little girl”.
A transgender boy who used to be a girl must be referred to as “he”.
A transgender girl who used to be a boy must be referred to as “she”.
Leo Soell, neither male nor female, is a "they"

And this woman must be referred to 
as “they” because she's neither 
male nor female.

So now here they are (Leo Soell) in this video to teach us transgender-speak. It’s very simple, really. Out of respect, just ask the transgender person what he, she, or they would like to be called and he, she or they will simply tell us. Then accordingly, we must comply with his, her or their wishes or be sued for harassment and bullying for intentionally using an incorrect pronoun.

New Di Blasio-Legislated Bathroom Sign for New York City - It's the law!

Will NYC businesses be required to build one bathroom for each gender, or will they have only one bathroom for all genders, called a Unigender bathroom?

New York: Insane and Proud of It!

Human Resources official hugger
It's official: New York Recognizes 31 Genders

And businesses better do the same, as well as use the appropriate pronoun in dealing with the gender confused or [he, she, it, they] will face six-figure fines. Here's how part of the Commission on Human Rights policy reads:
“Intentional or repeated refusal to use an individual’s preferred name, pronoun or title. For example, repeatedly calling a transgender woman 'him' or 'Mr.' after she has made clear which pronouns and title she uses.”
Hmm?  Glad you asked. Yes, woman and man make the list as numbers 17 and 18.

New Obama-Legislated Bathroom Sign

And Then There's Starbucks...

...flying the "gay pride" flag at corporate headquarters. Are you still drinking their foul, overpriced burnt-tasting coffee?

What would they say if we flew a "straight pride" flag? Really, Russia has developed one. Click the "read more" to see it. The flag was developed by the party of Putin. What a strange world we live in today when a democratic republic has become a totalitarian regime of political correctness and a former Communist country stands for the family. Weird!

Kissing Hershey Good-bye!

Hershey Park Jumps on Bathroom Insanity Bandwagon

Good-bye, Hershey. What a sad parting. My favorite candy bar was always Hershey Milk Chocolate with Almonds. My husband often brought home bags of Hershey Miniatures. I picked out the Special Dark, another favorite. And how I enjoyed those peanut butter cookies with a big, soft Hershey kiss on top. Sometimes I bought the giant Hershey kiss gift box for a sweet treat to say "I love you" to someone special. And, of course, Hershey ice cream and toppings often made our ice cream sundae list. No more! Adios, sweet betrayer.

Oklahoma Legislature Votes to Make Abortion a Felony; Guv Vetoes!

If you're against abortion, raise your hand!
Doctors are supposed to save lives, not kill.
(Source) Unfortunately, the supposedly pro-life governor, Mary Fallin said it was too vague and not the right bill and vetoed it. Let's pray the legislature can muster the votes to override her veto.

This has me singing Oklahoma for the legislature and Wash that Guv Right Out of My Hair for the governor! Her statement that the best way to overturn Roe is the Supreme Court has me shaking my head. Let's face it, we need a state by state rebellion against the overreach of the Executive Branch and the Supreme Court.

So How Does Having a Bullseye on Your Stock Sheet Feel, TARGET?

Target's new company logo: the empty shopping cart!
TARGET CEO Says Boycott No Problemo; $10B Loss Tells Another Story
"Since we launched the Boycott Target Pledge April 21, over 1.26 million people have signed on. Another interesting fact, Target has remained silent on Facebook and Twitter. The most recent post on Target’s Facebook page came April 23, and their Twitter has only had one tweet since April 19. 

Tricky Footnotes in Fine Print and Pope Francis

"In the footnotes you find the fine print, which is tricky." - Pope Francis

 A tricky footnote in fine print 
Gianluigi Nuzzi’s Merchants in the Temple is fascinating. He says that on July 28, 2013, in the Sala Bologna in the Vatican, Francis addressed “all the key players who administer the money and the property of the Holy See.”
“The Holy Father took the floor. He delivered an indictment that would last sixteen minutes, using harsher words than had ever been expressed by a Pontiff to the assembly–words that were supposed to remain secret…but that would not be the case. Foreseeing the risks that his innovative action would entail…someone recorded the Pope’s charges, word for word.” (p.11)
